Any chance of seeing some nice number crunching graphics on BOINC whilst its doing its thing? World Community Grid and other sites do.
Thanks

Thanksfully, we aren't like other sites. ;-)

For the GPU apps which use the GPU for the calculations, a screen saver or fancy graphics reduces the work getting done and is counter productive.

For the CPU apps, I might be able to do something. I'm generally more interested in getting work done accurately and efficiently than I am in having it look pretty but not work very well. OK, that's not really fair since WCG and others do work well too. Are you thinking images for the simple view or graphics for the boinc screen saver?
